ACT this week launched Mosaic, a research-backed, comprehensive learning solution to provide educators, learners, and families with online learning tools and services to address student needs in the classroom and at home, during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
Integrating several mergers, acquisitions and investments, Mosaic by ACT combines the adaptive academic learning power of ScootPad, open educational resources from OpenEd, Knovation, and curriculum and assessment framework services from ACT SkillSuite; social emotional learning from Mawi Learning and ACT Tessera; and learning and professional resources from ProExam.
Mosaic by ACT features:
Adaptive Academic Learning: An adaptive learning platform and extensive curriculum and real-time assessment resources to build student knowledge and skills in mathematics and English language arts. It includes a digital learning library with more than 80,000 curated and standards-aligned resources, as well as social and emotional learning.
Social Emotional Learning: An evidence-based solution that drives tangible results using flexible, adaptable assessment, and curriculum and professional development to prepare all students for success.
Learning and Professional Services: An extensive catalog of professional development services to help educators apply these resources to implement effective learning solutions.
“Educators, learners, and families are at the center of everything we do,” said ACT CEO Janet Godwin. “As a nonprofit helping millions of learners realize education and workplace success each year, we’re uniquely prepared to apply our expertise in meaningful ways. Mosaic by ACT is the culmination of our strategic approach to transform into a learning organization. We’re broadening our focus from measuring student progress (with assessments) to providing actionable solutions that improve learner outcomes.”
